At the end I decided to finish one of my first models. I've learn to model in 3ds in 2004 thanks to this great tutorial by Michel Roger (french original version here:
and english version here: http://www.3dtotal.com/ffa/tutorials/max/joanofarc/joanmenu.asp).
I've had that summer some great problems with rigging my charachter so I hardly finished it with new version of the program. This is the reason for the bad pose. I textured it again and rendered with V-ray.
For everyone would like to learn 3d modeling this is one of the best tutorials (a little too old now but again useful).
